Where We Watch says:
Just steps from the current (and former) titans of Wall Street is Stone Street, a hotbed of bars chock full of women and Wall Streeters trying to strike it rich. Hidden amongst the happy hour specials and outdoor seating is Becketts, a gem of an Irish bar that is the go-to sports bar for downtown's football loyalists. From Monday to Friday, you can be guaranteed to find the typical business meeting sampling the classic bar fare and a handful of regulars enjoying Beckett's wide foreign and domestic draft selection. On game day, the bar is packed with suits playing hooky, secretly swiging vodka in water glasses and passionately chanting for their club of choice. Regardless of the state of the financial markets, Becketts is always enjoying a bull market.
